    Best all around rack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I had the previous version of this rack and when I picked up my fat bike, well I needed one that would accommodate the big 5" doughnuts and why mess with a good thing right. Adjustable rear straps, rubber on the straps so no scratching the Carbon hoops. ratcheting rear strap holds the wheel tight and it's long enough for a deep 808 zipp wheel or your 5" fatbike tire.

    All aspects of the rack are top notch and I'm very happy with the fact that I can carry my road bike, cross bike, TT bike, MTB bike, dirt jumper and my Fatbike (ok I have issues).

    So all is good right? well here's my only complaint. by making this rack accommodate the 5" tires they moved the fork arms out wider and now when you go to access the handle to lift and lower the rack it gets in the way and makes it awkward. You either need to move the arm or grab it at a weird angle. Granted this only comes into play if the rack is in the up position or you are folding it up with no bikes on it but this is every time I go to the grocery store.

    Best all around rack

    Quality Rack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have owned several bike racks with all kinds of attachments for the past 30+ years. This is probably the best, most, secure, convenient and easiest rack to quickly load an unload our bikes for sure. I hope to get many years of reliable use out this product.

    Great Rack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using these for the better part of the year. This rack is well thought out and extremely easy to use. In comparison to the T1 and some of the more low cost models you can really FEEL the difference when loading bikes and driving with them.

    The bulk of the design leads to a solid feel on the road, where some of the lower cost racks seem to bounce around and crank my anxiety that my 5k bike may fall off. That alone is worth the $ upgrade.

    The two things that slightly bother me are the spinning locking mechanism that tightens and snugs your rack to the car - its not easy to grip and I cut my finger almost every time I tighten it, so going between cars is a slight pain. The second is the locking mechanisms to actually lock your bikes to the racks... they dont reach very far and it creates rub when driving because of how tight they fit on the frame. Both are minor inconveniences.

    The flip up/down system is bulky and soooo easy to use.

    It was very easy to install and I would highly recommend this rack to anyone interested.

    Best rack period

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using the original T2 for many years and the only issue we ever had was the lever being hard to reach. The lever on this rack is at the end of the rack and is much easier to reach and makes raising and lowering so much easier. There racks are heavier but that is actually better as they dont have any durability issues like some other racks out there. Fits most tire and bike sizes with ease and holds them steady thru the roughest of roads. Buy this rack. you wont be dissapointed.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I purchased this hitch mounted bike rack in the 2" size. I used it on my 2008 Honda Element to move my life and two bicycles across the country from NY. Through inclement weather and 3,000 miles of travel, the Rack was bulletproof. Not only was I not worried about theft(the in line locking cables, and the ability to lock it to the hitch) gave me the utmost confidence and security. The ability to articulate the rack up and down to access the trunk was a money feature when unpacking and accessing gear, without having to remove the bikes. I highly recommend.

    T2Pro XT hitch 2 bike rack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rack is definitely worth the money. Took about an hour to put all the parts together (only pictures which were sometimes unclear). Bikes mount by two points - strap through back tire frame and ratcheting arm over front tire. Folding the rack out of the way is easy and doesn't require super strength. Love the fact that I don't have to carry separate locking system. After struggling for several years with another bike rack which had parts that broke off trying to slip one bike to the back of the rack and then having to bungee tie the tires to keep the bikes apart, this rack is a dream. DId I say expensive, but WORTH IT?! It's worth it!

    Best rack I've owned

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is my favorite bike rack I've owned. The rack itself is super sturdy yet easy and light enough to take off by myself. The locking system throughout the entire rack is functional and simple. The ease of the handle on the end of the rack is a super nice feature for easy access to stowing away the rack.

    Sturdy, Reliable, Versatile

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The THULE T2 PRO XT is a great rack. It holds 2 bikes easily with no interference between the two as long as you arrange the trays accordingly. A nice feature as some racks want your brake lever on one bike cutting up your saddle or scratching your dropper stanchion on the other. It is very quick and easy to remove or add your bike, and the integrated cable lock is a sweet bonus. I wish it was a tad longer but it does the job. I love how quick and easy you can drop it low, I have a Ford Focus Hatchback and can drop the rack low and open the hatch fully even with bikes on the rack. It's equally easy to raise it up and out of the way when empty and gives you a nice audible "click" so you know it's locked upright. There are tons of things I love about this rack, but there is one big problem for me which may not be a problem for some. The retaining arm started to scratch up the lowers on my fork. Purely cosmetic, as it's the outside of the lowers (where they've been smashed on rocks anyways), but I just don't like it. I put some protective tape on my fork to prevent further damage but that really shouldn't be required. I've also seen people cut old pool noodles and wrap the upper arm to prevent this. All in all, awesome rack, killer features, but my bike gotta look good to feel good.

    Thule Hitch Mount Rack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love this Bike rack, it's worth every penny! I've had the older version of this which I loved until using this one. Taking it on and off the car is way easier with the knob vs. pin. Lowering the rack is also much easier now. Same key for cable locks as well as locking it to the car is much smarter.

    So easy to use!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rack is amazing. It's super easy to load bikes on quickly and securely & I have no problem accessing the trunk of my Subaru Outback when bikes are on the rack. Two bikes can fit very easily without feeling too snug. The rack was fairly straightforward and easy to install.

    Did not fit 2018 Subaru Outback

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I was excited to set this up but as I took out the manual there was a bad surprise:
    Although Thule's website wizard shows this would fit my 2018 Subaru Outback, the hole to the secure this in the hitch is "too close" to the end of the hitch, making this item incompatible (unstable / unsafe). Thule support confirmed this via chat, needs to be at least 3.8 cm and that's much closer on this car.

    Good but chuncky

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a nice update from Thule. The new hitch connection is cool, the hand release position is much better. It is a bit of a clunker but it seems it will last.

    Essential for MTN Bikers

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rack is fantastic, easy to install with only a few parts, simple design and works flawless. I say it's essential for MTN bikers because of the shocks under the main bar. Most hanging bike racks will not fit a MTN bike with this set up. If you are looking for a sturdy 2 bike mount go with Thule and you can add the additional 2 racks to this if you ever make more friends.

    Finally An Improved Hitch Rack

      Hitch racks have generally been the same for a while now, and I'm thrilled with the improvements that Thule has made here. Easy to pop up and down, locks securely to your car, and gets all kinds of bikes to and from the trailhead. Get the 2 bike add on and bring all your friends!

      Access to hatch and easy installation

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      The perfect bike rack that is easy to use. Of course I wanted a good quality bike rack that offered the right fit for my bikes, security and easy loading/unloading, but what put this one to the top of the list for me was the ease of installation, low profile when stowed away and hatch access.

      Great rack - I'd definitely recommend it

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used the Thule T2 Pro 2-bike rack for about a year. That amounts to about 200 uses with various bikes from 29ers to 26ers to 650b's to 5" fatties. I've even used it to transport a couple of cruiser bikes, some with fenders and some without fenders on the front wheel. It'll handle them all!

      The pro's:
      - Stout, well thought-out design
      - Good looks
      - Easy operation
      - Fits (almost) all bikes and sizes with ease

      The con's:
      - Didn't quite fit a 5" fattie
      - Front wheel tray is so large I had to trim it
      - Lock insert on knob never quite fit perfectly

      Day one, out of the box, this rack was easy to assemble and easy to install and slid right into place on my 2014 Volvo XC60 with a 2" receiver. The one-hand operation to raise and lower the rack is great and well engineered. This rack lives on my vehicle full-time so having a super easy way to raise/lower the rack with one hand is a very welcome feature. The ability to adjust the horizontal load bars is also handy when you're on the way for a weekend of biking with 4 bikes of various sizes (we borrowed the 2-bike add-on), saddle heights and handlebar widths. We were able to easily adjust it to fit four bikes whose handlebars and saddles would have otherwise interfered with each other. Driving out of the gas station and onto the road I realized the wisdom behind putting a little skid plate underneath the main knob you use to tighten the rack into your hitch. I scraped the rack on the road, went out and checked, and sent a non-verbal "kudo's" to the engineers who put that skid plate there because it saved my hours-old rack from getting damaged. Note to self: these racks stick out a careful when exiting gas stations.

      I've used this rack with bike frames of all sizes, wheel sizes and tire widths. The ONLY issue I've had with the rack is that the ratchet strap for the rear wheel didn't quite fit the 5" fattie tire my buddy decided to ride one day and we had to use a bungee cord to strap the rear wheel onto the rack.

      The nice, big tray that is supposed to fit up to a 5" tire is SO big that it actually rubs against my bumper on my vehicle. I'm not aware of a smaller tray you can purchase for the T2 Pro, so I was stuck with having to trim the tray to make clearance for it. If Thule would have made the tray just 1/2" shallower, bingo. But they didn't, so there you have it.

      The lock insert on the main knob has never seated properly in the hole. So, this means I have to be extra careful when removing or installing the rack so the lock insert doesn't fall out. Maybe this is user error, but I've had many Thule lock inserts over the years and this one just doesn't seem perfect.

      Fun story: I was on the 405 Freeway South of Long Beach with my rack on my car in the folded-up position when a guy crashed into me from behind. His car was messed up. Mine has a bent bike rack tray. Literally no other damage. That's how stout this rack is. But I'm getting his insurance to buy me a new rack and I'm getting the same one I had.

      Will the Thule T2 Pro hitch rack carry a 29er MTB with a 48 inch wheel base?

      Great question Joe, thank you!

      The Thule T2 rack is ideal for carbon frames, mountain, downhill, ebikes and fat bikes as it fits 20 - 29” wheels and up to 5” tires without adapters. The base for the front wheel is adjustable so you can tune it to suit your bike best. if you have any other questions, please feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call!
